    Well I guess I'll post the first actual picture here. LOL.





    I've had it since April of 2010. It's by far the best chair I've ever owned. I've had a couple of people who were over 20 years post who have told me it's the best chair they ever owned, one lady even telling me she almost threw it over her car the first time she transferred into her car and went to put it next to her. There's only one thing to watch out for, make sure the footplate is adjusted properly otherwise it twists the frame a little bit and causes it to pull, but that's all.

    Make the best out of today because yesterday is gone and tomorrow may never come. Nobody knows that better than those of us that have almost died from spinal cord injury.

    This is a mighty interesting thread about the Q7!
    Isn't there any way to insert a picture from your desktop?

    I think you are saying that it's really light. I'd have to try it and see. I think all the ultra-light chairs are pretty close in weight. My old Top End Pro-T (10yrs old) weighs a half pound less than my 2009 Tilite TR but I have a solid seatpan and a couple of other things I didn't on the first chair.

    The advertised weights are for chairs I don't think anybody will own. I do keep hearing good things about the Q7. I'm still waiting to try the Icon. They're claiming 21lbs with wheels. The only time I really worry about weight is when I need to get the chair in and out of the car, that part kills me. Don't really notice weight when I'm pushing.

    Thanks for the pics oh and the advice on how to set up with photobucket. Don't have anything to put up yet, but if I do, I'll post it.
